Magnificent views and exceptional sites to discover

The appellations of the Union des Côtes de Bordeaux share sunny hillsides and an exceptional architectural and historical heritage, making them a particularly pleasant holiday destination or simply a place to enjoy a walk among the vineyards and the châteaux.

With citadelles, châteaux, Romanesque churches and historical manor houses, our 5 regions are full of remains bearing witness to a rich past.

To improve awareness of its wines in France, the Union des Côtes de Bordeaux has for several years been developing the important concept of wine tourism.
